Significant Changes to California Workers’ Compensation Law

There has been a significant change in California workers’ compensation law that will take effect January 1, 2017 and may alter your clients’ workers’ compensation insurance coverage and premiums on their current and renewal policy. 


What is Assembly Bill 2883 (AB 2883)?

AB 2883 was signed into law August 26, 2016 and amends Labor Code sections 3351 and 3352 changing the definition of “employee” and the eligibility criteria to elect exclusion from workers’ compensation coverage.  Beginning January 1, 2017 all workers’ compensation insurance policies will be required to cover certain officers and directors of private and quasi-public corporations and working members of partnerships and limited liability companies who may have been previously excluded from coverage.
